Local Specialty and Emergency Veterinary Hospital Suspects Recent Cases Tied to Tainted Pet Food
New York, NY–Dr. Ben Davidson, Emergency Medicine Specialist at NYC Veterinary Specialists & Cancer Treatment Center is available for interviews regarding the recent pet food recall by Menu Foods of Ontario, Canada.
Doctors at NYC Veterinary Specialists have been seeing cases they believe are tied to the pet food recall, including “Solo” a male cat that was referred to NYC Veterinary Specialists by the family veterinarian. Solo presented to the hospital with renal failure. “It is most likely that his illness is associated with eating the pet food,” according to Dr. Davidson. Solo’s kidneys were not filtering the bodies toxins like normal and therefore had a build up that caused him to become ill.
Specifically, Dr. Davidson can speak about what signs or symptoms pet owners should watch for if they suspect a problem related to their pet’s diet, as well as tell pet owners what to do if they suspect their pet ate foods included in the recall.
